Wait, MS is publishing the PC version too? That's very odd. Alan Wake was published by MS on X360 but the PC version was not. If MS is publishing, I'm shocked it isn't a Windows 8 exclusive.
I bet they shopped that idea around to a few publishers and developers. And I'm betting those people/companies told them to fuck off. Well, they probably said it a bit nicer than that, but yeah.

Actually, after reading the story, I don't see any reason why Microsoft would be publishing the PC port. When you get accepted to put your game on Steam, you don't actually need a publisher, and would only get saddled with one if you had some previous agreement. So I doubt MS are actually publishing this, unless it's some kind of new company policy from MS that developers can skip XBLA six-month exclusivity (like Super Meat Boy, Braid, or Fez had) if they let MS take a cut of the profits from a PC port.
